Billy Claudio

Lead Pastor


I was born in Chandler, Arizona to an Air Force pilot father which was the beginning of my adventures in life. I spent my early years in Europe until we planted in Long Island, New York where my dad was born.  This is the place my relationship with God began, at a little Bible study my mom and I attended.  This decision revolutionized how I viewed life and my purpose. After graduation, I attended New Life Bible College in Tennessee where I help establish the traveling theater group known as The New Life Drama Company (1983).  I traveled around the country and world sharing the hope found in Jesus. I met my wife while traveling and have been blessed to share 29 years of marriage with two boys and now a beautiful granddaughter and daughter-in-law.
I am an avid golfer and love spending time with my family especially when we are out back grilling steaks and just hanging out.  My wife and I love the beach and anywhere warm.
Dawn and I planted Oasis in 2001 and have been so blessed seeing all that God has done.  We are thankful and believe that the best is yet to come.
